Saying vows from their hearts, they got married surrounded by their closest friends and family.
Congratulations to Chris & Sae!!! Mahalo for having us be your wedding cinematographers!
Enjoy this amazing wedding film shot at Merriman’s Kapalua, Maui.
Here’s their 5 star review of us!
Chris and I were so excited that we were able to work with HiFocused. Jordan was professional and prompt with communication. He made it easy to ask questions and exchange information through email, which was great because of the time difference. On the day of the HiFocused team was amazing. They were really easy going and did a great job with a pretty rowdy group, which is exactly what we wanted. The finished film is out of this world, we are so incredibly impressed with how it came out. My heart feels so full knowing we have our day preserved in such a breathtaking way that we can look back and enjoy for years to come!
Mahalo Jordan, Amber and Willard!
With best wishes,
Sae and Chris
Hawaii Maui, Kapalua Wedding Film / Jaclyn & Arjun
Congratulations Jaclyn & Arjun! Thank you so much for having us be
a part of your amazing wedding day!!!
The bride and groom had their rehearsal dinner at Lumeria, Up Country Maui.
Then the following day they had their wedding at the Kapalua Plantation House.
Despite the rainy weather, we got amazing shots of the two of them with
the beautiful back drop of trees and clouds with nice even lighting.
Mahalo again for having us be your wedding cinematographers!

Here’s the couple’s great 5 star review of us too!
When you have your wedding you hope for two things: the perfect wedding day and the most beautiful videos and photos to help you relive that experience. My wife and I were excited to be able to have HiFocused film our wedding. We had seen sample videos from so many vendors online, but found ourselves constantly coming back to their work. Their videos make you feel as if you’re watching a cinematic movie. Despite the intermittent heavy rains that we had on our wedding day we felt like we had our perfect wedding, but we were also a bit nervous about how everything would look on film given the weather. I have to say, though, that my wife and I were stunned by how amazing our wedding film turned out. Jordan and the HiFocused team were wonderful to work with. They were kind, patient, and accommodating. You can tell by working with them that they are thinking about every detail, every angle and how to perfectly capture every moment. The final product shows that attentiveness and care. We could not have been happier with how everything turned out. If we had to go back in time and do our wedding over again I can confidently say we’d still choose HiFocused as our videographer without a second thought.
Maui Makena Wedding Film / Shayna & Keli’i / HI FOCUSED
Shayna and Keli’i went all out for their incredible wedding day!!!
Their wedding day took place in Makena Maui at the scenic Sugarman
estate. I love the lavish decor the bride and groom had for their elegant wedding. It was amongst the best I’ve ever seen! During their reception they had great speeches and at the ceremony they had very personal vows with a special guest!
Mahalo for having us be a part of your amazing wedding day!

Here’s their 5 star review of us!
My husband and I are so pleased to have worked with Hi Focused for our wedding video. They were professional, accommodating and easy to work with. We are beyond happy with our video – it’s done perfectly from the music to the editing and has a very modern feel. It captured all of our best moments. We cannot stop watching the video and would recommend HI Focused to anyone in search of perfect cinematography. The Hi Focused team is the best!!!!
For Monica & Eric, finding marital bliss in one of the world’s most beautiful locations, The Ritz Kapalua Maui was one of their dreams come true. They spent a long time planning for this special moment, and they were not disappointed. The venue was perfect, just as they had imagined. The reception was equally stunning, and they were excited to celebrate in great style with their gathered guests.
One of the wisest things they did amongst all of that planning was to hire a professional videographer to film all of their wonderful experiences. Of course, the main reason was so that they would have a high-quality video of their wedding day. They wanted to be able to share this special event with far-away friends and family.
So if you’re also planning a great destination wedding, or even just a simple affair somewhere close to home, securing the services of a true professional will be a rewarding experience. Because a skilled and highly trained camera operator has all of the most recent video equipment, you’ll be assured that each important moment will be recorded and edited to provide you with a great wedding video.
You’ll be pleased to know that because of the state-of-the-art equipment used by a professional videographer, you will be able to see a fully edited version of your wedding video soon after the evening has concluded. The high-quality digital equipment used by your camera person is capable of processing all of the video segments, including audio and special effects right there on location. You’ll be extremely satisfied with the results.
The important thing about hiring a professional videographer is that you don’t want to wait until it’s almost time for your wedding. Select and schedule your videographer as soon as possible so that you are assured of having a qualified professional for your special day. Your wedding planner will probably already have this important item on the to-do list, but double check just to be sure this is being addressed early on in the preparations.
It was a true please to be apart of this amazing wedding at the Ritz Kapalua!
Congratulations to Monica & Eric, thank you for having us film your wedding!
Here’s the couple’s great 5 star review of us too!
Jordan came highly recommended as a preferred vendor by our wedding coordinator at the Ritz Carlton, and we knew we had to book him after seeing his work and amazing drone footage. Well before our wedding day, Jordan went through every step of the process with us, and really made sure that he understood what was important for us to capture on video. My husband and I are not used to being in front of the camera, but Jordan and his team were so attentive and made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. They were professional and accomodating, and captured everything that we wanted in our wedding footage and more. We were so impressed by the quality of our wedding video- it captured the moments accurately and they definitely nailed it! And of course, the hi def drone footage was breathtaking and so cool to see! If you can, definitely go with Jordan and his team- I promise that you won’t regret it. Thank you, Jordan and the Hi Focused team!
Pedro & Katrina, had the wedding they had always dreamed of. This wedding was at the Maui, Kaanapali Hyatt.
The setting was perfect! They celebrated in style and elegance along with their friends and family.
As they shared about their experience, both of them agreed that one of their best decisions as they prepared for their special day was to hire a professional videographer to film with them. The venue was incredible and they wanted to be able to relive their wedding celebration time after time.
Almost every wedding planner highly recommends having someone with a video camera to record the wedding. However, just because someone has a video camera doesn’t mean that the equipment is professional quality and that the operator really knows how to use it. For that, you need a real professional that has the training and experience to record, edit, and produce a quality video product.
Imagine that you’ve reserved a premier destination wedding location. You and your partner are giddy with excitement, and your friends are shaking their heads in amazement. The actual wedding location has the most spectacular backdrop, and the reception and banquet facilities are beyond your wildest dreams.
Then imagine that your friend who was supposed to take some photos and a few videos shows up with an antiquated camera with scratches on the lens and a battery pack that won’t keep a charge.
The only wedding memories you’ll have are the ones you have in your head. Your plans to share images of your wedding with your friends and family who couldn’t attend are shattered. Your wedding will still be beautiful, but you’ll be disappointed at not having the photos and video you had wanted.
That’s why you need to hire a professional. You want someone who has state of the art equipment that is in perfect operating condition and a backup camera just in case something happens. You’ll also be pleased to know that your videographer not only knows how to use every capability of the camera, but is also a very creative artist.
It takes a special eye to see the possibilities for each segment. Knowing which angles are best, what kind of filters should be used, and selecting the best lens settings to get the right results are skills that you’ll find only in a professional camera operator.
So don’t settle for mediocre video skills and equipment. Take some time to find the best possible videographer you can find so that you’ll have the results you truly desire. You will be very glad that you did!
Thank you Pedro & Katrina for having us film your wedding!
Here’s their 5 star review of us!
As soon as my husband and I decided on Maui I googled Maui Videographers and came across Jordan and the Hi Focused website. I was thrilled when the Hyatt presented them as a preferred vendor in the wedding planning guide! After convincing my husband that Jordan’s footage was some of the best I had seen and this would be completely worth it; I contacted Jordan to book him and it was one of the best decisions we made. Jordan was very communicative with us through emails and phone calls while we worked out details. We had a call with him a few days before where he reviewed details of our wedding day and provided us with his professional advice on what would work best for our schedule and location. Jordan completely blew me away on the day of the wedding. He and his team arrived early and ready to work almost immediately. Jordan was really great with our photographer team and was great at communicating what he was doing and why. He helped put me at ease and his team really helped ease my husband’s stage fright. Every shot was well thought out and coordinated and the footage was amazing! We booked the team for 4 hours and we stayed right on track the entire time – in large part due to Jordan and his team.We fell in love with our wedding trailer! And we just received our documentary footage and raw footage package this week. The packaging was secure and very nice looking as well! We loved loved loved our wedding video!

Mahalo Angel & Kenneth for having us be your Maui Wedding Videographers!
Here’s their 5 star review of us
Our search for a cinematographer began a year before our big day on June 28 2017 at Gannon’s in Wailea. After reviewing all other companies wedding videos in Maui, it was clear that HiFocused was the number one choice for us to shoot our video. Email communications were great from the beginning when we inquired about Jordan’s services. As we got closer to the date Jordan recommended some changes to the proposed timeline to try to fit all of our requested shots. On that day Jordan and his team showed up early to our condo unit. They were easy and fun to work with. At the ceremony site, they worked well with Cheynice of Karma Hill Photography and not getting in each other’s way (as they also worked with each other before). In just 2 weeks after the wedding, Jordan sent a link to our completed Wedding video!! The composition, music, highlights of tea ceremony, cake cutting, sunset beach video, drone videos and the ceremony were all amazing. We showed the video at our banquet a month later back home and all of our friends and family loved it! If you are marrying in Hawaii (especially in Maui), we highly recommend HiFocused as your cinematographer. Mahalo, Angel and Kenneth
Weddings have always been special events. Just look at this amazing wedding video at Ritz Kapalua, Maui Hawaii.
As you can see in this video of Michelle & Keith certainly enjoyed their celebration!
The venue is splendid and all of the careful planning is evident. What a memorable wedding day!
Weddings take a lot of preparation, from flowers to candles, and from the reception venue to arrangements for family and other guests. There’s the dress for the bridesmaid and the outfits for the groom and his best man.
And of course, there is the bride’s dress. The Ritz Carlton Resort wedding ceremony was amazing and full of emotions: laughter and tears and smiles. The reception that follows is filled with the sounds of the guest cheering for the newlyweds. Eventually, however, the day will end the only thing the couple has are the memories.
Most newlyweds spend hours and hours, going through hundreds of wedding photos. It seems that everyone has a camera on their cell phone. The selection of photos available are varied. They are shared with guests who were at the wedding and with those who were unable to attend. But while those photos serve as wonderful reminders, nothing captures the awe and joyfulness of that special day better than a professionally produced wedding video.
A high-quality video, recorded by a trained, professional video artist, will give you a lasting memento that allows you to share with others every aspect of your wedding day. You’ll also see the look in the eyes of the groom as he watches his wife-to-be coming towards him. Through the magic of video, viewers will be able to get a sense of the emotions and wonder of the celebration. In addition to the amazing visual images, a video can also capture the sounds of each special moment. You’ll hear the bride and groom as they exchange their vows. If there is any special music sung by friends or family members during the ceremony, you will have a recording of that to share also. By having a reputable wedding videographer in attendance at your marriage celebration, you can focus your attention on the important things. Your hired camera will take care of creating a beautiful video that will document every important moment. Hiring and scheduling a qualified videographer is probably one of the most important preparations you can make as you plan that special day. Make it one of the very first things you do. You’ll be so very glad that you did! Enjoy watching this beautiful wedding video we shot at the Ritz Kapalua Maui.
Congratulations to Michelle & Keith on their awesome Maui Wedding!
Here’s their 5 star review of us!
Jordan is so much more than a standard wedding videographer, he’s extremely talented and has an eye to capture the emotion of your big day. Jordan and his team filmed our wedding on May 5, 2017 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Our wedding planner highly recommended him and she nailed it. We had a few emails and a phone call before our big day. Jordan is extremely detailed and organized. He caught a few things in the schedule that we tweaked due to his feedback. My husband is a pilot and saw that Jordan does drone footage so that alone sold him. Jordon is very personable and a nice guy. On the day of the big event, Jordan and his team were on time and were fun to film with. The day went perfectly. He knew the property very well and kept us moving to capture the best lighting. His drone footage was Jaw dropping especially at the end on Lava point. After 3 weeks, Jordan emailed us the link to view our video. The music selection, shots, voiceovers, scenery, and aerial coverage were perfection! We both had tears watching it and my husband never gets emotional. I’ve shared our wedding video to many friends and family that weren’t able to attend our wedding since it was a small destination wedding. Everyone always says this is unlike any wedding video they’ve ever seen and we usually always get tears ;). I love how he cuts it to be 7 minutes so it makes it easier to share with friends. He does give you the all the raw footage that you and your parents would want to see. Many of our friends over the years decided against hiring a videographer and afterwards every single one of them regretted it. Your wedding is one the most important and expensive day of your life, after it’s over all you have is the video and photos. And the video is so much more personal. Select Jordan to film your once in a lifetime moment, I promise you will not regret it. We can’t thank Jordan and his team enough. Mahalo ~Michelle & Keith
Dahee & Chris could have gotten married without having the video made, but then they would never have been able to enjoy sharing their special day with all of those friends and family members. Imagine all of the benefits of having a professionally crafted video of your wedding day. Sure, there are all of those photographs, but they never seem to show the wonder and splendor of the event. The bride and groom’s amazing wedding day was at Hotel Wailea, Maui.
However, a video can provide all of that and more. In fact, nothing can capture the mood of the wedding better than a skillfully made video. You’ll be able to see the bride in all of her splendor as she is escorted through the gathered crowd. Then there’s the expression on the groom’s face as he sees his enchanting bride approach. That’s something only a video can provide.
An experienced videographer will also know how to capture the beauty and splendor of the wedding venue. You’ve made special plans to be married in that location, so you will certainly want to have a recording of that as well.
Don’t forget the audio portion of the video. You’ll enjoy listening to each other as you share your wedding vows and when you here the wedding official announce you as husband and wife.
You’ll celebrate at the reception with all of your guests, so it will be important to have the videographer invited. It will bring a smile to your face as you listen to the music while you watch the two of you dancing together for the first time as a married couple. You might also enjoy listening to the toasts made by your guests. And then there’s the cutting of the wedding cake. A photograph can never capture that moment like a video will. Your wedding planner will take care of all of the preparations, but you might want to check that a videographer has been contacted and scheduled well in advance. These skilled professionals are in high demand, so don’t wait until it is too late. Put it at the top of your planning list.
All the best and congratulations to Dahee & Chris at Hotel Wailea, Maui!
